Director 



Our Director. Geor<re Whitefield ("liadwirk, is renowned, not only hy the 
einineiK-e of the position he has held for the past thirty-one years, but also hy his 
reputation as an illustrious composer, conductor, and author. He was horn in 
Lowell, Mass. on November l.Sth. 18.34. His first instruction in organ playing he 
received at the age of fifteen, from his brother. 

At the age of eighteen he entered the ('on.servatory and studied organ with 
George Whiting. Dudley Buck, and P^ugene Thayer. Stephen Emery instructed 
him in Harmony. Mr. ( hadwick gained not a little fame as a concert artist and as 
a teacher. 

In 187(i he left Boston to become head of the Musical Department of Olivet 
College, Michigan. After serving one year in this capacity, he went to Europe to 
continue his niu.sical education. In I.,eipzig, under the in.struction of Jadassohn 
and Reinecke, he advanced rapidly in the art of composition. An overture, sug- 
gested to him by Irving's "Rip Van Winkle" was j)erformed in Leipzig with great 
.succes.s, and critics even then ob.served the freshne-ss and structural value of his 
works. Mr. ("hadwick continued his study under Joseph Rheinberger in Munich. 

.\fter his success abroad, he returned to Boston and to his Alma Mater. He 
became a member of the Faculty of the New England Conservatory in 188L teach- 
ing Harmony and Composition. In 1897 he became Director, and it is largely 
through his efforts that the Conservatory has attained its present rating among the 
leading musical universities. 

Mr. Chadwick has had as jjupils. many noted American musicians. su<h as: 
Wallace Goodrich. Frederick S. Converse. .Vrthur Whiting, Horatio Parker, Henry 
Hadley, Edward Burlingame Hill, and Daniel Gregory Ma.son. 

He has achieved great success as a versatile com{)Oser. His compositions include 
.songs, choral works, operas, overtures, chamber music, and some beautiful sympho- 
nies. He was awarded the honorary degree of Master of Arts by Yale University in 
1897, and that of Doctor of Laws by Tufts College in 190.5. In 1908, he was elected 
to the American Academy of Arts and Letters. 

In graduating, the class of 19'28 will carry the memory of the inspiration and 
interest which Mr. Chadwick has afforded it. We take this opportunity to expre.ss 
our gratitude and esteem and to wish him success and hapjjiness in all that he 
undertakes. 




GEORGE WHITEFIELD CHADWICK 
Director 




Wallace Goodrich, the Dean of the P'ac ulty. is a man of versatile ac-complish- 
ments. He was born in Xewton, Mass. May '27, 1S71. He decided, when he was 
quite young, to follow a musical career. At fifteen, he began studying organ with 
Henry Dunham at the Conservatory. He studied Harmony, Counterpoint, and 
Composition with Mr. Chadwick. During the time he pursued his musical educa- 
tion, he gave many recitals in the vicinity of Boston, besides holding resj)onsible 
church positions. 

In 1894, he went abroad to study organ under Jo.seph Rheinberger, and con- 
ducting under Ludwig Abel at the Royal Conservatory in Munich. .Vt the end of 
one year's study, Mr. Goodrich conducted publicly, a composition of his own, an 
Ave Maria for chorus and orchestra; and was awarded a silver medal for comjwsition 
and organ playing. 

The following year he studied with Widor in Paris, at the same time making a 
concentrated research into French organ music. In 18!)f)-18J)7, he was a r<''i)ititeur in 
the City Theater of Leipzig, and directed an elaborate l)allet. 

He returned to Boston and joined the faculty of the New England Conserva- 
tory as an organ instructor. Ten years later, in 1910 he became the Dean of the 
Faculty. In this office, he conducts a very capat)le orchestra and a splendid ciiorus, 
both of which give several concerts each year. 

Mr. Goodrich has held many responsible positions in the musical world. He 
was organist of the Boston Symphony Orchestra (18!)7-1!)()0) and of Trinity Church 
(190'2-1909). Besides being one of the regular conductors of the Bo.ston Opera 
Company, he organized the Choral Art Society and Cecilia Society, both of which he 
conducted in many brilliant performances. 

His versatility does not .stop there, however, — he is j)robably one of the leading 
authorities on Plain Song in the United States. Not only has he introduced it in 
English in America, but he has given many in.structive lectures on the subject. 

The Con.servatory is fortunate in ha\ ing such a capable man as Mr. Goodrich 
for Dean of the Faculty. His splendid musicianship, his thoroughness in every 
endeavor, his strong personality, — all have been fac tors in the .school's success. 
We feel richer for having known and been guided by him, and we ho\)e that his 
influence will continue to be exerted for many years.

Collegiate Department 




McGinnis Little 
Leach Owen Littell 



The history of our Collegiate Department is no allegorical tale of a sudden 
figure appearing on the horizon. It is one of conflicting forces and inipedinaents 
blocking the way, so that its final establishment spells triumph in every letter. 

" Festina Lente " is the slogan by which all Degree aspirants generally go. They 
first complete the Diploma Course, and then de\'ote from two to four years in per- 
fecting their respective instruments, acquiring academic knowledge, and researching 
for material which will sooner or later result in a thesis. The crucial moments of the 
individual recital, the performance with orchestra, and the Faculty Council examin- 
ations, are never to be forgotten; and each time we write beside our respective 
names, B.M. or B.S.M., small though the letters may .seem to an observer, to us they 
signify the very epitome of all that is labour, — and the achievement of the highest 
honor the Conservatory can offer.

ACTIVITIES 





Nye Howes Roberts Maguire 

Griswold Lahan Colby 



The Conservatory Club, one of the youngest organizations of our school, came 
into existence early in 19^20 in response to a growing need for a large democratic 
organization for the women students. The charter members numbered only thirty- 
eight but the club membership is now one hundred twenty-five, and it already has a 
long waiting list. 

Its object is to promote a closer relationship among the women students of the 
school, to encourage high scholarship and to foster school spirit. 

However, the "Con Club" does not neglect social activities. Various functions 
lia\ e been held this past year and in fact this year has been the most successful and 
e\ entful one in the history of the club. Luncheons, bridge parties and dances have 
been numerous. For the season's final event a formal luncheon is held to bid fare- 
well to all its members until the following school year.

The Conservatory Orchestra 



CONDUCTORS 

Mr. CiKOKfiE W. CiiADWU K Mh. W.vllack Goodrich 

The Conservatory Orchestra of eighty-five lueinbers was organized in its present 
form in 1901, since which time it has given an average of six to eight concerts each 
year, in which members of the Faculty and advanced students in tlie pianoforte, 
violin, voice, organ, and otlier departments have api)earc(l as soloists. 

The Orchestra is composed of .students and mcinhers of the Faculty, and is 
constituted as follows: 

Sixteen first violins, fourteen .second violins, ten violas, ten violoncellos, six 
contrahas.ses, three flutes, two oboes, one English horn, two clarinets, one ba.ss 
clarinet, three bassoons, one contra-bassoon, four horns, four trum])ets, three trom- 
bones, one bass tuba, two har])s, tym])ani, and all i)ercussion instruments. Other 
instruments are added as recpiired. 

Three rehear.sals are held weekly, one for wind instruments, Mud two for the full 
orchestra. All advanced students in the .string and wind instrument departments of 
the Con.servatory are required to ])lay in the orchestra; and outside .students of 
ability may also be admitted, on payment of a nominal fee. 

Advanced students, whether in the Conservatory (^our.se or Special Students, 
may rehearse (oncertos and arias with the orchestra, and may be admitted to \wr- 
formance in concert. 

Students in composition may have their works rehear.sed, and performed, if 
found worthy. Students in conducting also have oi)portunity for actual practice. 

This orchestni affords the training and routine indispensable to the ex])erienced 
orche.stral i)Iayer, and many of its former members are now filling i)()sitions in llic 
Boston Symphony and oilier promiiuMit orchestras of the I nited Slates.

The New Building 

An addition to the present huildin;^ of the Conservatorj' has lieen const riicted 
for llie acconiniodation of the large enrolhnent of three thousand five hundred 
students. The plans were drawn by the firm of Haven and Iloyt of Boston, and 
provide for about forty feet additional frontage on Huntington Avenue, preserving 
the line and design of the present beautiful fa(,ade. 

The new wing covers the entire adjoining lot, which was a gift from the late 
Eben I). Jordan, and rises three full stories in height, besides basement and mez- 
zanine. 

In addition to the main entrance on Huntington .\venue, there are i)a.s.sage 
ways from the old l)uilding on the first, .second, and third floors, the corresponding 
floors of the new building l)eing practically at the same grade. 

.V wide lobby, with ticket office leads from the main entrance into a corridor 
where are loc ated the elevator and main stairway, a Ladies' Parlor and a coat-room. 
Beyond an inside foyer is the large hall, designed to seat about .seven hundred 
people. The seats are not rai.sed, which facilitate their removal and the conversion 
of the hall into one for dancing and similar entertainments; a stage somewhat larger 
than that of Recital Hall is provided at the St. Botolph Street end, with arti.sts' 
rooms having exits from the hall to St. Botolph Street, on each side. 

In tlie basement, the entire space under the hall is given over to a large room 
which will .serve for supper at dances, together with a large and completely equipped 
serving room. 

Tlie entire front of the l)asement is a Mes's Common Room, for the use of men 
.students at all times for reading or recreation. Adjacent to it is another large room 
which will give more ample quarters to the fraternity Kappa Gamma Psi than has 
been possible in the old building. 

The mezzanine floor, between the fir.st and .second floors proper, fills the. space on 
the front of the building corre.sponding to that in the rear whi< h affords nece.s.sary 
height to the hall. On the front there are three rooms; on the side, a room for women 
teachers and a Women's Reading or Common Room for the use of the women 
students between recitations and at other times. Two rooms are also set apart as 
rest rooms for women students. A small gallery with about sixty seats, overlooking 
the Hall, contains a {)ermanent booth for moving picture projection. 

In the Hall it.self near the stage, space has been left in which an organ for use in 
connection with motion picture exhibits or instruction may be installed at any time. 

The second and third floors are gi\ en over entirely to teaching rooms and are 
practically identical in plan. As in the old building, the walls of all rooms are as 
nearly sound-proof as possible and have a special type of .sound-proof door, in order 
to keep any .sound out of the corridors. 

With such complete equipment for handling future students of the Conserva- 
tory, we can foresee a wonderful advance in the quality and (juantity of work to be 
done.

The Conservatory Library 



MARY ALDEX THAYER, Librarian 

The General Library, open from nine to five o'clock every week day throughont 
the school year, excepting' on school holidays and durin<i' vacations, is free to all 
students of the Conservatory. Its use is an important i)art of their musical educa- 
tion. While it is primarily for reference, a limited numl)cr of books may be taken 
for home u.se, subject to the rules of the Library. 

Included in the collection of .se\ en thousand volumes are tlie complete works of 
Pale.strina, Handel, Mozart, Beethoven and Mendelssohn; a valuable collection 
of English Cathedral music, including many early editions, and of manu.script of the 
early Italian masters; orchestral scores of nearly all the classic, and of many of the 
modern works performed at the concerts of the Boston Symphony Orchestra; vocal 
scores of practically all the standard operas of all .schools, and orchestral .scores of 
operas by Verdi, Wagner, Puccini, and others. 

The Library contains also a fine collection of poetry, })iographies, essays, works 
on Musical History, Harmony, Church Music, School Mu.sic, and .Vcoustics, and 
many other reference books about singing, pianoforte, violin, orchestration and 
other subjects, to which important additions are constantly being made. It also 
includes bound volumes of standard musical magazines, covering long periods of 
great historical importance in the development of music in both America and Europe 
together with complete programs of important musical organizations, and the best 
contemporary musical periodicals and reviews. 

The Librarian is ready to assist students in every possible way, by sui)j)lying 
material for their individual needs. Classified lists of works relating to each of the 
departments and courses of the Con.servatory are kept in convenient form for the 
guidance of students in selecting books for reference or for collateral reading. 

The Library Bulletin Board always bears notices of musical interest, such as 
announcements of concerts and opera, with portraits and biographical sketclies of 
the composers and performers represented, and frecpiently analysis and other in- 
formation about the works to be given.

The Department of Public School Music 



The Public-school music department gave its second annual concert by its 
Choral Class and the Conservatory Orchestral Class, February the tenth, 19'28, 
under the able direction of Mr. Francis Findlay. The program was as follows: 

OvERTrHE, Fingal's Cave .... MemleUsohn 

Hymn of Ph.\ise — Cantata for Chorus. Soli, Orclie.stra and Orpin Mendehxohn 

P.\KT SoNG.s for Three Women's X'oices with Orchestra: 

Deep in the soul of a rose ... Chadwick 

I remember ... Parker 

June rhapsody Daniels 

Part Soxgs for Mixed Chorus with Orchestra: 

(a) Caravan Song. ... Chadwick 

(b) Mexican Serenade Chadwick 
Chorcs for Mixed Voices and Orchestra: 

Land of Our Hearts .... Chadwick 

The assi.sting soloLsts were Ruth Lahan, soprano, I^eone Reynolds, soprano, 
Richard Condie, tenor, and Philip Ferraro, organist. The concert was very success- 
ful and Mr. Findlay is to be commended upon his success in drawing from the chorus 
and the orchestra their be.st efforts. 

During the past three years, this department has been greatly strengthened by 
extending the length of the course for diploma to three years and including in the 
curriculum a sufficient number of subjects to allow our graduates to qualify in 
almost every state. Much of the credit for such rajiid advancement in the organiza- 
tion of the public-school music course and successful direction of it is due to Mr. 
Francis Findlay, who is ably assisted by Miss Grace Pierce, supervisor of music in 
the Arlington public-schools. 

Mr. Chadwic k, our Director, and Mr. Goodrich, Dean of the Faculty, have also 
shown a great interest in the advancement of the course and have heartily supported 
Mr. Findlay in all his undertakings. We sincerely hope for the maintenance of the 
high standards which the Xew England Conservatory has established and for the 
success of its graduates in all fields of jjublic-school music.

]Mu Phi Epsilon, composed of fifty active chapters and many alumnae chibs, is 
an honorary musical sorority whose membership is limited to those whose musical 
abilities fulfill its requirements. These are: excellent scholarship, a High School 
education or its equivalent, knowledge of the piano and of theoretical subjects 
besides proficiency in one's chosen instrument, and the ability to make a creditable 
public performance. 

Its objects are the advancement of music in America, the development of the 
truest sisterhood, and loyalty to the Alma Mater. 

A national scholarship fund is maintained at the National Headquarters for the 
members in need of assistance to finish their musical education, and the various 
chapters of the sorority give scholarships to their members.

Al])lia ("hi Omega, a member of the National Pan-Hellenic Congress, granted a 
charter to Zeta Chapter at the New England Conservatory of Music ten years after 
the fraternity was founded at DePauw University, Greencastle, Indiana. 

Zeta Chajjter is the only strictly musical chapter of the fraternity. Although 
.\lpha Chi Omega is a Collegiate fraternity, its traditions embody the appreciation 
of music and its sister arts, and the attainment of a high moral and mental .standard. 
Scholarship is emphasized not only because high rank supports National prestige, 
but also because the fraternity believes a certain degree of intellectual accompli.sh- 
ment will enrich the life of each member. 

There is a National Scholarsliii) Fund for members and a National Scholarship 
for children. The first day of March, Hare Day, each girl devotes her time to 
altruistic work.

American composers, and awards a prize to the member who writes the best original 
composition.
